Although it has been affirmed that the prosecutor's office remains authorized to investigate criminal acts of corruption, the possibility of practical problems will still arise. The research method used is normative juridical with a statutory approach, concepts, and comparisons. The results of the discussion of this study provide solutions to the limitations of the authority to investigate corruption crimes based on the type according to location, perpetrators, loss values, and types of corruption crimes that occurred.
